BTW, I have the ability to shoot RAW, but I don't. I'm sure one day when I finally try it out, I'll wish I had a Delorean to go back in time and kick myself for shooting JPEG all this time. I'm just hesitant to make the plunge and try it...
Well... at least you have the option. Poverty sucks. I read somewhere that repeated saving of .jpg deteriorates quality and .tiff does not. So I started saving as .tiff based on that.
